Rayman Fiesta Run announced for a Fall release

Video game maker Ubisoft has announced that they will be releasing a follow up to their hit game Rayman Jungle Run this Fall on Windows Phone 8, iOS and Android. Rayman Fiesta Run will consist of 75 levels of running and jumping through a foody, fruity party-filled world. Along with the fast-paced running and jumping that we have come to expect, Rayman will also add the ability to swim, shrink and punch.

Rayman Fiesta Run will also include 4 levels of Invasion Mode, a game mode found in another title in franchise, Rayman Legends.

In addition to the fact that we will be seeing another fun-filled Rayman game from Ubisoft, what is great about this news is that it looks like Rayman Fiesta Run will be released on Windows Phone at the same time as its rival platforms, iOS and Android. If this is indeed the case, it may be a sign that Windows Phone is gaining more traction in the mobile operating system race.

Recently, we've seen how company's like Gameloft face challenges in getting games to market on Windows Phone at the same pace as other platforms. This kind of latency has led critics to question the viablity of Windows Phone. If companies of Ubisoft's caliber continue to make the effort, we could see Windows Phone gain a little more traction with consumers.

If you haven't checked it out already and want to prime yourself for the sequel, check out Rayman Jungle Run  here for $2.99.
